My favorite was the brontosaurus, but it doesn't exist anymore. I haven't picked a new one yet.

That is not a Dinosaur.It is a Plesiosaur.

Your favorite Animal is still there. It's just the name is changed from Brontosaurus to Apatosaurus.

I have such of big problem with the year suggested ranges... 130 million years, yesh...both isotop and carbon dating tehnologies are not peviding accurate readings and they could be influenced by so many factors

Hate to tell you this but they don't need to use either of those technologies to put a rough estimate on the date. Its all from the layers the fossil was found in.

Yeah, but "Apatoburger" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
